From the award-winning screenwriter and director -- a collection of irreverent and hilarious rants on the absurdity of just about everything.

In 1994, Kevin Smith debuted his low-budget film Clerks at the Sundance Film Festival. It became an instant cult classic and made Smith the top dog of the indie film world. Next he was an executive producer of the smash hit Good Will Hunting and quickly earned the title "King of Gen X Cinema" from Time magazine. He appeared on Charlie Rose, Politically Incorrect, Late Night with Conan OBrien, and currently holds a regular spot on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno hosting a segment entitled "Roadside Attractions." Fans of his films will instantly recognize Smith as Silent Bob -- the character with no lines. And last year Smith began writing a hilarious monthly column covering popular culture for Arena magazine.

In this side-splitting rant-fest, Kevin Smith waxes rhapsodic and obnoxious on everything from his platonic infatuation with Ben Affleck to his bloodcurdling hatred of Britney Spears, from his shocking diagnosis with morbid obesity to the fatal flaws of SpiderMan -- all done in his inimitable, raunchy style.

Silent Bob Speaks interweaves the best of the Arena columns with a new introduction by the author to produce Smith's first collection of bawdy, over-the-top essays, guaranteed to make his legions of fans choke on their Cheerios.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great read! Some great Smith stories "Silent Bob Speaks" is a book that any Kevin Smith fan will appreciate. Like his movies, you have to "get" Keven Smith to appreciate "Silent Bob Speaks." Smith is the first to know that Silent Bob's humor doesn't speak to everyone, so he doesn't try to change his ways to appease the masses. Smith is happy conveying his special brand of humor uncensored for those who like it the way it comes out. I highly recommend "Silent Bob Speaks" to fans of Smith's movies

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun Read Kevin Smith, the man behind Clerks and the entire View Askewniverse certainly entertain on screen and now with his first published book, he can till crack me up. This is actually a collection of Smith's blog-like posts on his website, chronicling his life up until 2001. There are some very interesting insights into pop culture by Smith and some very funny jabs at himself all through-out the book. If you are a fan of Smith or his movies(Clerks, Mallrats etc..) be sure to pick this up.
